Re: change the theme for windows vista?
Hi,

Vista doesn't offer an XP theme, and you can't install the one from XP into
it. Themes rely on library files for much of their content, they don't exist
the same in Vista as in XP. You may be able to locate a third party program
that will allow a fairly close approximation, but it's not something you can
do natively.

I'm not sure that this will help you, but this is what I did to put the Azul
wallpaper on my VHP. I found the XP themes at this web site and when the
image was clicked it appeared in a form where I could click Set as
Background and the XP wallpaper showed correctly - even on my widescreen LCD
monitor. Try:
